Once a new release is available, notification window appears on aMember Pro admin dashboard screen. You may click the upgrade link to automatically install the upgrade. Make sure to backup database, and aMember Pro files before upgrade, as upgrade process overwrites files without confirmation.

If for some reason you do not see new version notification, open the location http://www.yoursite.com/amember/admin-upgrade as it would appear on your server to force a reloading of upgrades list.
